APRIL 2022 I SMT007 MAGAZINE 85 We interviewed two of this year's IPC President's Awards, Joe Kane of BAE Systems, and Zhiman (Susann) Chen of Zhuzhou CRRC Times Electric Co., Ltd. The IPC President's Award is given to IPC members who have exhibited ongo- ing leadership in IPC and have made significant contributions of their time and talent to the association and the electronics interconnect industry. One of the most common physical repairs (restoring functional capa- bility of a defec- tive PCB while not complying to meet original specifications) on a PCB is the repair of solder mask. The IPC Connected Factory Exchange standard, CFX, has triggered a revolution in the way that industrial machines communicate in a secure, IIoT-based, plug-and-play environment. Attention now is on how CFX can be connected to older, "dumber" machines, bringing 100% visibility and control across the whole manufacturing floor, thereby avoiding the numerous technical and financial pitfalls historically experienced. Flex announced Becky Sidelinger has joined the company as president of Reliability Solutions. Ms. Sidelinger will lead the company's Reliability Solu- tions, which includes the automotive, industrial and health solutions business units.
